Behavioral Science Research Practicum



The primary objective of this course is to provide a hands-on experience in the development, design and execution of rigorous behavioral science research. Students will be asked to design and execute a theory-based research project. We will explore a variety of different methodological approaches and discuss the fit between students' specific research questions and different techniques. Our goal is two-fold: (1) to help students develop a sophisticated understanding for what constitutes rigorous research within the field; and (2) to coach students through the research process in order to create a high-quality empirical paper for publication.
